Our Distinctive A+R Style

+ With insight from our guide, your tour of the Temple of Heaven reveals not just a Ming Dynasty landmark but a popular gathering place for Beijing residents where you can experience a slice of daily life.
+ Follow in the footsteps of China’s mighty Emperors on a privately guided tour through the palaces, courtyards and pavilions of the Forbidden City.
+ Ascend by cable car to explore atop the Great Wall at Mutianyu; with its formidable defensive towers and spectacular mountain setting, this section of the Great Wall offers a more rewarding experience.
+ Explore by rickshaw through the ancient lanes of a Hutong, one of the city’s traditional neighborhoods where courtyard homes evoke a way of life that is rapidly disappearing in this 21st-century city.

You’ll be warmly greeted at the airport and escorted to your choice of city-center hotel: The deluxe Park Plaza Wangfujing or the luxurious Fairmont Beijing Hotel. The rest of this day is yours to relax and enjoy as you wish.
 

A full day of enriching, privately guided touring begins this morning at the Temple of Heaven c; it’s a resplendent example of Ming Dynasty design and engineering that also offers insight into ancient Chinese beliefs in numerology and cosmology. The Temple’s vast park-like grounds draw city residents who come to do Tai Chi, play cards and catch up with friends – making your visit a fascinating cultural experience as well. Then hop aboard a rickshaw to explore a Hutong; winding your way along the cobbled streets of this ancient city-center neighborhood, you’ll see traditional courtyard homes and glimpse a way of life vanishing in this 21st-century city. After lunch, your sightseeing continues with Tiananmen Square and the magnificent Forbidden City c, a sprawling complex of palaces, courtyards and pavilions.  Meals B+L
 

Situated farther from the capital than other sections of China’s most famous landmark, the Great Wall c at Mutianyu draws fewer visitors. And with its many defensive towers and splendid setting amidst the rugged mountains, Mutianyu offers a more authentic and rewarding experience. Ascend by cable car and walk atop the Great Wall as your expert guide shares insight and history. After lunch, you’ll continue your touring with the beautiful Summer Palace c, erstwhile seasonal retreat of China’s emperors. Set on wooded hills surrounding a tranquil lake, this assemblage of pavilions, palaces and gardens offers a fascinating look into Imperial life long ago.  Meals B+L
